Can we please talk about the way storm surge works?? If your teammate dies, you lose all of their surge tags... so if you're a duo in a stacked trio game you're almost guaranteed to be a few hundred below surge ESPECIALLY if it's your sniper that goes down.. unless you're flat out W-Keying... and if you're a solo you're just dead.. there is no reason for you to lose your teammates damage for surge if they die... it doesn't make any sense
Hey guys, I think we can all agree that the lower rarity Pump shotguns are not in a good spot right now. It might be a bit much to ask Epic to adjust the damage right now, as the FNCS invitational finals are coming up.
But let's ask them to make bullet spreads consistent across all rarities, defaulting to the purple or blue pump's bullet spread.
Lower rarity pumps suffer from significantly larger spreads, making them oddly inaccurate, even from just one tile away. Making the spreads consistent across rarities (as it was in chapter 1 season X), makes them significantly more accurate than tac shotguns, with the tradeoff of much longer reload times and much slower fire rate. updoot for awareness bros.
Since the patch, as I am sure most have noticed, BSG significantly decreased loot spawn rates for all rare items, along with the major nerfs to the Reserve marked room.
If you want to make decent money now, you have two options: rush resort, or play customs marked. Thats its. Labs has too many hackers now, and reserve/interchange with the nerfed tech spawns are essentially worthless. Runs that used to net gpus or at least a couple mil cables are now barren. Even oli and goshan are empty at the start of most raids. I want to play these maps, but I literally cant justify it anymore.
I feel like the loot changes are a major step back for the progress of this game, in terms of map variety. There is no reason to play anything else than the starting map. Me and my friends just spam customs marked, and make millions with almost no competition, no complex routes or anything. Just run to a single room and run to V-ex.

Hi, I am a regular JP server player here. I wrote this guide because I want to share my knowledge with global players who also enjoy the same game as me. However, this is a guide by a competitive view of the game, so it might not be for everybody. Regardless, I hope you do find some of this useful :)
I have added FAQ section on the bottom of the guide. Please read them before asking further question. Thank you :)

This Wednesday, April 29, we’re planning to release Destiny 2 Hotfix 126.96.36.199. This patch will have fixes for bugs that have popped recently, and also has a quick tuning pass for a weapon that’s been shining a little too bright in the Crucible since Season of the Worthy began.
Hard Light, a name that may either strike fear or pure joy in your heart, will be the subject of today’s article. Here are some notes from the team on how this weapon will be tuned come tomorrow morning:
Dev Team: Hard Light has been at the forefront due to a combination of recent adjustments to improve its usability and the adjustments to Auto Rifles that came with patch 2.8.0.
Most of the adjustments coming on Wednesday are to address its usage for mouse and keyboard users since the ability to precisely aim regardless of range allows you to use the weapon at longer distances, on top of being able to use ricochets more effectively.
Although weapons like the Fight... keep reading on reddit ➡
The final reward of the event is 20 stargazer tickets, this seems pretty good value, but like, the last reward is something that a lot of people won't get and also is the one that actually gave me anxiety thinking I wouldn't get since level 8 cities are hard and I through my militia wouldn't be able to defeat the final boss.
But we did it, and I got 20 stargazer tickets, then I went to stargazer and tried to get 1 Talene, the only relevant thing I got was 3 blue cards
No progress towards some guarantee, no consolation prize for progress or anything like that.
I mean, I know this game is a RNG grind insane p2w game, but I don't know, that was the hardest event that came to the game until know and the final reward had the chance to be extremely underwhelming because of how the stargazer system works, so the problem could be Lilith thinking stargazer tickets could be a good final prize
r/Overwatch is going to be making some small adjustments to both our Weekly Sticky rotation and our link (thread) flair, as part of a series of upcoming changes to the subreddit. Please use this thread if you have any questions about the changes.
Our current sticky rotation is as follows:
Starting next week, the new sticky rotation will be as follows:
The current classes need a pass in meaningful synergy, and the signature weapons need a pass that makes them all viable. In the current situation of the game, only a few signature weapons have the properties to make them meaningful additions to the arsenal, and I find myself using most of them a) not at all or b) for giggles. Here are my suggestions. These are not set in stone, can be looked at individually rather than a monolithic package, and come from the top of my head.
*This makes sense and fits the role of getting away from danger and/or setting enemies up for headshots. The flashbang is on... keep reading on reddit ➡
There's a lot of disconnect with the devs and the community, and I feel it isn't exactly unwanted.
However, it may be because the expectations of the game aren't lining up with what the devs are currently creating.
I believe the situation can be simply rectified by renaming the game and going through a company re-branding, and I'd like to propose a solution:

When it comes to Bitcoin Cash's difficulty adjustment algorithm, it is having many issues. We've come across situations in which several consecutive blocks are mined in a few minutes, which can be bad for security, and the overall credibility of Bitcoin Cash. I've looked at the block explorer as well, and there are times when the antminer pool gets 5-6 blocks in 10 minutes. Though the average is still at the proper 10 minutes, I can foresee this causing many issues, and making Bitcoin Cash potentially fail. If this DAA isn't fixed, a big mining pool that is opposed to Bitcoin Cash can easily increase (and switch over hashrate from BTC to BCH), causing the difficulty to increase, and then leave the pool almost immediately so the pool of smaller hashrate will take SIGNIFICANTLY longer to solve that block. I have seen this at points where Bitcoin Cash blocks have gotten extremely long (ex. ~2 hours after the reward halving), and that's an issue that needs solving. I saw a video on [youtu... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hey Battlefield V community,
Next week we’ll be releasing Update 6.2 that includes tweaks, adjustments, and fixes to Weapons & Gadgets, Vehicles, Soldiers, Maps & Modes, Sound, and improvements to Stability and Performance. We’ll also be bringing Tank Body Customization to Battlefield V - but we have a separate Broadcast for that.
We know that one of the biggest conversation topics of which we’ve received a plethora of feedback and data on has been the weapon changes that came with Update 5.2 / Hotfix 5.2.2. As noted in the previous Community Broadcast by Global Community Manager Adam “PartWelsh” Freeman:
>We will continue to operate a damage model that ensures that weapons that are designed to be lethal in close quarters will still do less damage beyond 30M than experienced in 5.0, however we’re making adjustments to the damage curves to en... keep reading on reddit ➡
Special thanks to other passionate Gazlowe mains including /u/PhantomV3, /u/Canadiancookie, and /u/Overpowerr for brainstorming ideas over the past two years and helping to shape this rework.
I’ve played a lot of Gazlowe since 2015, mostly in QMs. Since I exclusively one-trick, I play little ranked to avoid forcing my teammates to draft around me. My bona fides, such as they are, include:
Over 10,000 games played on Gazlowe in QM
#1 Gazlowe on the QM Leaderboard
Season stats: 194 Gazlowe games; winrate 55.2%; MVP 21%; current MMR: 2830
Additionally, I’ve experimented with every talent in his tree and have studied other players’ games to learn how to maximize the return on various build paths. I'd say I'm as aware of the strengths and weaknesses of the hero as anyone.
On to the re-work.
Gazlowe has been in a decent spot for a long time now. He’s only been tweaked a few times and his winrate has been steady since his last major rework i... keep reading on reddit ➡
I thought I would share the experience I just had in case anybody is in a similar position. I had ordered a showroom M3 LR AWD 19” when COVID really blew up. The car was in NY (I live in MA) and it took a couple weeks to get it into my state. It has ~300 miles on it and they offered a $2,400 credit on the price. For me, it was a no-brainer (yes I’m aware of quality issues for both new and showroom cars). I was still holding out from agreeing to the terms until I saw it in person anyways.
I was supposed to take delivery this past Saturday, but as I was driving down late in the afternoon to the showroom my sales rep called me saying that there seemed to be a firmware issue and that the techs were all gone for the holiday weekend. I said that I wanted to still come down and at least inspect it...so I did. It’s a March 2020 with such small, minor imperfections that I would have never noticed had I not researched the hell out of buying a Tesla.
So I went home a little sad that I didn’t... keep reading on reddit ➡
Graduate students (with support of our undergraduate colleagues) at UCSC are on a teaching strike for the second week in a row, in order to fight for cost of living adjustment (COLA) that would lift us out of heavy rent burden. Many of us pay 50% or more of our income on rent. We have suffered for years with runaway housing costs, meager protections from our labor union contract, and an unsympathetic university administration. Between 2014 and 2018, our contract guaranteed an income increase of 3% per year, but rent increased by 54% over the same time period. Between 2018 and 2019 alone, the cost of housing increased by 15%. UCSC grads have very little power to influence the results of these contract negotiations - during the 2018 contract vote, UCSC grads voted 80% AGAINST the agreement, yet were outvoted by grads at other UCs with larger numbers.
With few options left, **over 400 graduate teaching assistants (TAs) initiated a wildcat strike last December by withholding fall-quar... keep reading on reddit ➡
Has the guild quest balance actually been done? I swear to the spaghetti monster shinji spammed his third over and over again, legitimately without interruption. Or is it just certain bosses, so maybe 1 boss from the 8 weeks of GQ?
I'm using Destina since the day I play Epic Seven (over 2 years now). Since the AI adjustment, she is constantly wasting her S3 for nothing, so it feels like a huge nerf. 1 debuff in a full HP team isn't worth her S3.
Please SG, undo your butchering.
My daughter works at a grocery store and last Friday did a price adjustment on an item. It rang up $4 and customer said it was $2.50 so she adjusted it and wrote a note so someone could later check the sign.
She gets called into the office Saturday and told the price was correct and she shouldn’t be making adjustments without speaking w a supervisor. Fine.
Sunday she goes in and it’s a bit busy. New saw started and bargain hunters are there to get things before they run out. Turns out soda that was supposed to be 5/$11 is ringing up incorrectly and is a known problem. A manual price adjustment is needed. My daughter proceeds to call over the supervisor who reprimanded her the day before to receive permission to make adjustments for every customer buying the soda for 40 minutes before being scolded for ‘being difficult’. My daughter reminder her of what was said the day prior- adjustments should be approved by a manager. Apparently the supervisor was ticked off.
